Read full description of the books What a Trip, Amber Brown:We listened to a few audio books last night and this was one of them. I wasn't very impressed and while Julia liked it I could tell it's not something she'd pick up again. I doubt she'll even want to read any Amber Brown books. I don't want to imply that it's a bad book - it's not - it's just not a favorite of ours.
We listened to a few books yesterday evening besides this including Chester's Way by a favorite author of ours, Kevin Henkes, our very first Madeline book - Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans and Anansi and the Magic Stick by Eric A. Kimmel.
My reason for listing the exact books we finished last night is because I think these books are why we didn't get so into What a Trip, Amber Brown. We both love all of Henkes books and we both fell in love with Madeline and agreed we have to read them all. Anansi is still new to us but we've read a few and they're worth reading and we've liked them so far. So in the end, this one fell flat for both of us.
IMO this story is a little on the long side and being that the story is on the long side I'd expect the wording to be slightly more mature. Maybe a few contractions, etc. It seemed almost like a long toddler's book which was strange to me.
There are a couple giggle-worthy parts but with so many kids books and characters out there I doubt either of us will have the desire to revisit Amber Brown.
Read information about the authorBorn in Washington, D.C. and raised in New York, Paula Danziger knew since the second grade that she wanted to be a writer. Throughout her career, she wrote a collection of children's stories, including The Cat Ate my Gymsuit, The Divorce Express and, more recently, the Amber Brown series.
Danziger loved to travel and meet young kids all over the world. She was embraced by her audience for her ability to relate to children through the characters in her stories. She was often known for "borrowing" children (only the ones she knew) for her inspiration. The Amber Brown character was conceived during one of her trips with her niece.
Danziger was also the recipient of numerous literary awards, including the Children's Choice Award from the International Reading Association and the 2003 Garden State Children's Book Award. She spent most of her time in New York City and London, England.
She is survived by a brother, three nephews, and a niece. The Amber Brown Fund has been set up in memory of her. Donations for this fund will be used to allow authors and illustrators to speak at local schools and libraries.
